Celtics' G Smart fined $25000 for obscene gesture

By the end of the game they handed the Boston Celtics their second loss, as they defeated them 111-97 on Tuesday night, according to Fox Sports With the help of 22 points scored by Jimmy Butler it was enough to lift the Bulls to another win.

While some might be shocked by how Chicago has played as a No. 8 seed that was just 41-41, Butler made it clear he's not one of those folks. He has totaled 52 points, 17 rebounds, 11 assists, five steals and three blocks so far this series.

Six Bulls finished in double figures, with Robin Lopez scoring 18, Paul Zipser 16 off the bench and Nikola Mirotic 13.

"Everybody's putting in extra work, watching that film, working on their game". "That's where your confidence always comes from". "And when your point guard, your leader is prepared, we're all prepared".

They hold a stunning 2-0 lead over the top-seeded Celtics as the series shifts to Chicago for Game 3 on Friday night.

Wade, who scored 22 points in Game 2, had nothing but strong praise for Rondo in his postgame presser, even saying that he once hated going up against Rondo because of how smart and fiery he is.

But now the Celtics coach, perhaps with a change or two in the lineup, gets to see who on this roster responds to potential elimination from the playoffs.

After their 106-102 win in Game 1 on Sunday, most would anticipate this Bulls team to be content. Through it all, Rondo kept a professional attitude, working on his game before and after practice hoping for more playing time. If the Bulls bring Rondo back, they'll be far short of the cap room required to sign an elite free agent.

"I feel like in the second half, the ball stopped moving".

"We've obviously moved past what happened", Hoiberg said. Such ability to stay with his man on a drive from the exterior to the basket was not something that Lopez showed he had earlier in the season, and his ability to recover makes it that much easier for the Bulls to mitigate the small ball spacing of the Celtics' offense.

Despite fielding an efficient offence in the regular season, the Celtics' attack has been largely neaturalised through two games.

Game 3: Clippers at Jazz, 7 p.m.

The most notable moment of his National Basketball Association career so far was when he pulled Kevin Love's shoulder out of socket in the first round of the 2015 playoffs. That put Chicago back in the postseason, after missing out a year ago for the first time since 2008.

"They played with an intensity and level from the beginning of the game", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.

"I hated him as a competitor (referencing playing against the Celtics during his tenor with the Heat) he was that good".

No services have been planned for Chyna Thomas, who was killed in a auto accident on Saturday.

"We have to play hard no matter what", Bradley said. You hear a lot of people talk about how that time - especially in a guy's sanctuary, like the gym is for Isaiah - is able to kind of alleviate the pain for those couple of hours. And the noise is not going to be for you. He was an underrated-at best-center that played solid minutes on a lowly New York Knicks team that seldom garnered any praise from the national media.

Boston fell to just 14-4 in Game 2 at home following a loss in Game 1.
